When building my gaming PC I wanted to make sure I had enough power to support the system for the next couple of years as I assume I will only add more hardware to the system of the course of time. I almost went with a 750w PSU but I asked a couple of fellow internet buddies their thoughts on a power supply and they told me to go for more power to future proof it. I decided on the EVGA SuperNOVA 1000 G1 which is a 80+ GOLD certified PSU. My thinking is a year from now my GTX 970 video card will be “dated” and I might not be able to run new games on ultra unless I add a second video card and run them in SLI. If I do that I would need to make sure I have a power supply that could power both cards plus all my other hardware as well.
The EVGA SuperNOVA 750 G1 was $80 and I paid $147 for the SuperNova 1000 so it was a bit more expensive but in the long run I think I made the correct decision. I chose the the EVGA PSU because I have always had a great experience with anything from EVGA plus they offer a 5-year warranty and EVGA has top notched customer support!
